Winter Solstice - a time to Awaken




Winter Solstice is a powerful time. It's a closing of one chapter and a beginning of a new one. But before you do, take the time to contemplate your immortality and forgive. Then make a fresh start and Awaken!!

Winter Nights
Today I received a new parcel to my front door and I have been so excited about receiving this one. Firstly because it's got my favourite single essential oil in it - Northern Lights Black Spruce and secondly because this oil reminds me about my home country Sweden. I used to spend time in the forest with this smell and it's divine and so grounding.

This essential oil blend has also got Peppermint, Cedarwood and Orange in it.
I have it diffusing in my office and the moment and it smells amazing. I am feeling uplifted, happy and I also feel that things will be fine. 😀



Comment Below to find out how you can get this oil into your home.

I also love using Citrine when I set intentions such as "I choose to be happy". I also love carrying Citrine with me or wearing it to enhance manifestation and to create Abundance.

Natural citrine will very rarely ever grow in clusters like amethyst, so when you see a yellow, orange, crystal in a cluster formation, it is most likely a form of heat-treated amethyst. Another way to tell is if the root of the crystal is white but the tip is an orange or yellow color. The only chemical difference between Amethyst and Citrine is the oxidized state of the iron impurities. Naturally occurring Citrine is quite rare, which is the result of natural heat and pressure applied to Amethyst over a very long period of time. ... Ametrine contains the healing properties of both Amethyst and Citrine.
